Bio:

I work at the intersection of academic, commercial, and non-profit organizations in social sciences and health-related research.  I have managed quantitative and qualitative research projects in over 20 countries, including nationwide surveys and ethnographic studies in the Middle East, Francophone Africa, and Asia.

I have worked as an International Research Consultant for clients including the BBC World Service Trust, SAVOLA (Saudi Arabia), the Afghanistan Research & Evaluation Unit (Kabul), Intermedia Research (Washington, DC), and The Family Room LLC (Norwalk, CT). Before coming to Yale, I worked for the BBC World Service and Durham University (UK).
